Vomitory-Opus Mortis VIII
Metal Blade Records
No bones about it this is no frills and no bull shit death metal. What a refreshing thought. Pure unfiltered in your face death from one of Sweden's oldest and finest bands. Vomitory does not mess around on Opus Mortis VIII. Formed in 1989 by guitarist Urban Gustafsson the bands early influences were bands like Sodom, Napalm Death, Slayer, Carcass and Venom. As an early underground favorite their sound started out as thrash before developing into straight up death metal. After releasing some demos and a vinyl 7 the band released their debut album Raped In Their Own Blood in 1996. While the band has never really moved beyond old fashioned death metal their sound has remained reliable. They consistently put out quality death metal albums and this one is no different. Just black and white assaulting your senses death. Nothing new and yet Vomitory make it work with their conviction.
